Ear Seeds

Yes, I'm wearing them. Ms. TCM stuck them to my ears yesterday at my appointment. I have 3 on each side and they trigger acupressure points. I can push on them gently through-out the day. Gently is the operative word. Mr. W thought he'd poke them hard and I hauled off and smacked him one when he did! So yes, they hurt when over stimulated.

And yes, we are speaking again but it's tense. And he was moody again after the TCM session. I asked him how the acupuncture went. He said fine. I asked him if he fell asleep. He said no. Busted! Ms. TCM told me he was snoring in the other room. Gosh, this TCM shit must really suck for him.


  1. I'll have to look up "ear seeds" because I don't know what they are, but how nice of your DH to jab them for you (sorry, but I absolutely laughed when you said you "hauled off and smacked him one" because, God, it just captures precisely how I feel some days and the words rolled of my tongue like honey as I read them).

    Seriously though, I'm sorry things are still tense. It sucks to have that kind of additional stress. Keep talking... and I hope things get better for you this week.

  2. Gah. I am glad to hear that you are speaking with the man again - it is hard enough...((HUGS))

  3. Glad you're speaking to each other again. and my dh did exactly the same thing!

  4. I had ear seeds-I thought they looked kinda a new jewelry trend. As annoyed as you might be with your dh, not all men would agree to acupuncture. Mine didn't (he did say he would consider it if the second IVF hadn't worked)-and he was the one with issues, although my acupuncturist found plenty wrong with me according to Eastern medicine...good luck.

  5. thinking of you
    hoping your DIY does the job-- that would be the coolest thing ever.
    hang in there and yes, keep talking-- that matters so much.
